(4.3/5 based on 80+ reviews on the web)
Lake Hibara is a lake located in Yama District, Fukushima, Japan. It is a part of the Bandai-Asahi National Park and is the largest of the lakes in the Bandai-kōgen highlands.FormationA mesotrophic lake, Lake Hibara was formed as a result of the July 15, 1888 eruption of Mount Bandai. The resulting debris avalanche created a natural dam that then filled with water, submerging Hibara Village. The remains of Hibara Village still lie at the bottom of the lake.RecreationA tourist industry has built up around Lake Hibara, offering hiking trails, pleasure cruises, and campgrounds and other lodging. In the winter, ice fishing is popular.

  • One of the swamps around Bandai volcano was 200 years ago, volcanoes and lakes. After walking around the Goshiki-NUMA, Lake hibara reached was very large. I visited in the fall foliage season is quite windy and cold. I think good aboard a cruise ship and enjoy the summer.
